FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – OCTOBER 25 2016
Provocative ‘Slapman Series’ Schools Music Managers & Artists on the Power of Sync Licensing in Film, TV and Advertising.
Brisbane music company The Sync Report has hit the international DIY market with a series of colourful videos that highlight the importance of sync licensing in the music industry.
Aptly named ‘The Slapman Series’ the animated short films introduce Slapman and his mohawked dog Mr Rex who promptly slap people who tell them that they are too lazy to build a fan base, get media attention and earn an income with their music.
Designed for music managers and savvy artists The Sync Report teaches people how to build lasting relationships with music supervisors/buyers, as well as providing a complete up-to-date report on who’s looking after the music licensing for hundreds of current TV shows, films, brands, trailer houses and video games.
Unlike pay-to-pitch services, tip sheets or music libraries, The Sync Report puts the ball firmly in the music manager and artists court, whereby they are responsible for securing their own sync deals.
“Volume is up and budgets are down which has opened the door for under-the-radar acts to go direct with music supervisors – we guide our subscribers through the entire process, not just give them a directory of contacts but rather give them the information they need to skill up, stand out and get their songs licensed” explains Co-Founder Daniela D’Onofrio.
A defining point of difference that sets The Sync Report apart is a TV calendar that allows subscribers to see upcoming TV shows, the attached music supervisors and the best times to be pitching their music.
The platform also provides Top 50 lists that allow subscribers to pinpoint contacts working on the worlds biggest TV shows, brands, films, trailers, & video games in the USA, UK, Canadian and Australian markets.
“Everyone knows that getting songs synced is a big deal, it helps artists build a media buzz, gain new fans and earn an income, said Daniela. “The Sync Report is for people who are serious about getting sync deals and prepared to learn how to get them.”
